This is right up there with Donald Trump’s bible stunt. Today the president briefly left Walter Reed Medical Center simply because he needed attention from some of his suppporters who were gathered outside the hospital.

Trump appeared to be wearing a mask as he waved to people who lined the street, some with Trump flags. There were reportedly at least two Secret Service agents in the SUV.

Many people say this joy ride wasn’t only unnecessary, but also reckless.
